Realfine Coffee expanding to Capitol Hill in Stumptown’s old E Pine space

While neighbors wait to see what might come next to one longtime favorite Capitol Hill coffee spot, another is set to go back into motion.

West Seattle’s Realfine Coffee announced Tuesday it will be expanding onto Capitol Hill, taking over the E Pine space left empty when Stumptown left the street in August.

“We are beyond excited to announce a second location in Capitol Hill! Coming soon to 616 E Pine St in early 2018,” the Realfine announcement reads. “So grateful for this opportunity. Cap Hill, here we come!”

Owner Julie Mierzwiak opened Realfine in 2015 on Fauntleroy Way SW where her neighbor was also a Rudy’s. Lately, she’s been entangled in local concerns about lost parking from a new development project in the West Seattle neighborhood. Hope her expectations are low for E Pine.

Realfine will bring Herkimer beans to the cafe space adjacent E Pine’s Rudy’s and Capitol Hill Loans that Stumptown called home until it was shuttered late this summer. Stumptown, meanwhile, continues to operate on 12th Ave.

It is CAPITOL HILL, not CAP HILL. Didn’t David Schmader settle this years ago? Geez.

He thought he settled it. And so did everyone it bugs. But people have been saying it for years, and probably always will. And it’s driven people crazy for years.
